How to use

In ancient Chinese literature (aka 文言 Classical Chinese), the character has many functions. It's still nowadays very much a word reserved for the written language. You'll find it in many idioms, proverbs, 成语, poems, and classical texts.
It can be used:
- as a particle,
- a direct object pronoun (that is to say, it can only be used when the pronoun is the direct object of a sentence),
- a demonstrative pronoun
- as well as a verb.
